The Spring before I encountered the ModPo poetry class, I was taken by this list. It is the reading list suggested by the Craft Class for The Writers Studio of New York. Yes, I know there should be an apostrophe in there.
The list was what I started to work my way through. It gave me the idea of exploring American Literature further. I was shocked at the speed with which the students were expected to get through the work. I wondered how on earth they could afford so many texts.
This is the current reading list for the Craft Class.
